guiding
Any IntentionalProcess where the agent tries to direct the behavior of another Object, whether an Agent or not.
Relationships      
Parents intentional process A Process that has a specific purpose for the Agent who performs it.
Children achieving controlAchievingControl is the class of all events in which an Agent gains physical control over some object.
 AnimalGuidingA Carrying where the instrument of the Carrying is an Animal and that objectTransferred in the Carrying is the Agent of the Guiding.
 dramatic directingThe process of directing a DramaticActing in a MotionPicture or the Performance of a DramaticPlay.
 drivingControlling the direction and/or speed of a Vehicle. This includes navigating a ship, driving a car or truck, operating a train, etc.
 educational processAny Process which is intended to result in Learning.
 GuidingMotionControlling the motion (direction, trajectory, and/or speed) of an Object.
 managingOrganizationalProcesses that involve overseeing the activities of others. Note the key differences between RegulatoryProcess and its sibling Managing. The latter implies a long-term relationship between the manager and the managed, while the former implies a normative standard to which the activities of the regulated are referred.
 MovingCursorThe UserSignifiedGraphicalAction is accomplished by a ComputerUser taking a UserDirectAction that is interpreted as signifying that a cursor should be moved. Depending upon program state this could be accomplished by UserDirectActions of MouseMoving, a TouchSurfaceSlide, JoystickMotion, ScrollWheelRotating, KeyboardAction, repeated %&Clicking, or AudioInput.
 MusicalConductingAn instance of MusicalConducting is a Guiding in which the patient (entity guided) is a Musician or a MusicalGroup.
 PhysicalGuidingControlling the motion (direction, trajectory, and/or speed) of a CorpuscularObject.
 rail carrier controlRailCarrierControl is the process of controlling the speed or direction of a train by sending high or low frequency currents on the rails.
 regulatory processAn Guiding whose aim is the enforcement of rules or regulations. Note the key differences between RegulatoryProcess and the related concept Managing. The latter implies a long-term relationship between a single manager and limited number of agents who are managed, while the former implies a normative standard to which the activities of the regulated are referred.
 seatingGuiding someone to a Seat, e.g. as when an usher shows someone to a Seat in an Auditorium.
 signallingSignalling is the subclass of Guiding processes in which an agent, animate or inanimate, sends a signal to another Object. In many cases, this signal will be an electrical or electronic one. Some signals may directly control the behavior of the object signalled, while others may merely cause information to be presented. Instances of electrical Signalling are typically more complex than simply than operation of a DeviceSwitch, though in some cases, Signalling involves remote activation of such a switch by another device.
